Fête de la Musique 2015

Sunday 21 June 2015 16:30-21:00

In French, first day of summer rimes with Fête de la Musique!
Join us at the Institut to celebrate all together the longest day of the year in music.

We’re very proud to welcome Christine Bovill for her wonderful tribute to Edith Piaf, as we celebrate this year the centenary of her birth.

Crossing the Firth of Forth for the occasion, the Fife based band Das Contras will play their self declared ’Folk-Funk-Jazz-Punk or something.’

The Bistrot will be open for the occasion and hopefully the garden too!


4.30 - 5.15 pm : Music quiz ’French covers’

5.30 - 6.30 pm : Christine Bovill chante Piaf

6.30 - 7.15 pm : Music blind test

7.30 - 8.30 pm: Das Contras
